  3. WILLIAM KNIGHT, ONE ARTIST: THREE MEDIA

    October 17, 2019 - December 1, 2019 @ Worker's House and Gallery

    William has worked in oils, pastel, charcoal, watercolor and printmaking for fifteen years before spending a decade hypnotized by encaustic paint–an ancient Greek process using beeswax, damar varnish and pigment. In addition to Knight’s encaustic works, will be works in pastel and in art glass.  The pastel pieces, on hand-made paper, were painted in an olive grove planted around 1600 in Assisi, Italy.  The ancient, gnarled trees are an arresting sight.  Other pastels were made on extended visits to Venice, Paris, and Bermuda. Art glass, the third medium in this solo exhibition, makes strong use of mouth-blown glass with its unique patterns and swirling colors created in the mouth-blowing process.
